Tiny traffic cop shocks New Yorkers by lifting taxi off the ground

t’s a pretty typical New York City scene. Cab driver parks where he’s not supposed to, a traffic cop confronts him. The cabby refuses to move his taxi. Heated words are exchanged — and then the diminutive cop lifts the front of the taxi four feet off the ground to prove the taxi driver can move his car.

Suffice it to say, the feisty cop did not just Hulk-out and something else is afoot here.

The clip, embedded above, is another viral video from Thinkmodo, the team that brought you Devil Baby. This time, however, Thinkmodo, led by James Percelay and Michael Krivicka, left the genre behind and built something that looks completely real. In essence, it’s a practical special effect that could be used over and over again on the real streets of New York City in front of stunned onlookers.
